Stoicism: Jordan Peterson and Identity Politics

I comment on controversy surrounding Clinical Psychologist and Professor Dr. Jordan Peterson who opposes Canadian Bill C-16; talk about the dangers of identity politics and mob mentality; and offer my thoughts concerning group identity.

My Stoic Philosophy video series explores the philosophical tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from the practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers. I tackle many topics including handling adversity, finding meaning in life, working toward contentment, dealing with change, anger, and gratitude.
